The G-G Boys Book Club:

Kieran (8): The Last Olympian by Rick Riordan

Dad (as old as Methuselah): Shine by Lauren Myracle (plus 145 Middle Grade novels for the Cybils)
Chris (15): Rules to Rock By by Josh Farrar

What's on YOUR shelves today?


  1. I've got The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo on my eReader right now and I have to admit it's giving me trouble. I just can't seem to get into it. I'll persevere, since so many people think it's wonderful, but so far I can't see it.

  2. My daughter loved The Last Olympian. I really want to read Shine. Can't wait to see all the books you'll be recommending.

  3. Madison is reading the newest Rick Riordan right now, but I can't remember the title. Kylie is re-reading the Dragonlance Chronicles, but she's chomping at the bit for Inheritance, Paolini's final Eragon book, which comes out next month.

  4. What a handsome family you are! Great choices, boys.

    I'm currently reading "Daughter of Smoke and Bone" (love it!) by Laini Taylor, daughter J (15) is reading "Redwall" for school, daughter M (12) - "Catching Fire," daughter L (7) is flying through the Magic Tree House series and son P (17)- lots of Chem, Physics, and college applications.

  5. Happy reading you four!

    Especially you Methuselah, lol. 145 books...consider coffee in an iv.

  6. My kids and I are too busy watching TV.
    JK Ironically, Bridget (11) is reading AL CAPONE DOES MY SHIRTS. Oh, wait--wrong blog.
    Sorry--just tell the Don I said that, okay?

  7. I'm rereading Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor;
    Jason's reading Stolen Life by Jaycee Dugard;
    Noah's reading Loser by Jerry Spinelli; and
    Talia's got Spiderwick Chronicles in her left hand and Franny K. Stein in her right.

  8. Shine is at the top of my TBR pile. I am now reading Chime.

    You have such a lovely family!

  9. Can't wait to have kids so I can read with them and see what they're reading.

  10. Great photo! Warms me heart to see you lads a'reading. I'm currently in the middle of The Skin Map by Stephen Lawhead, and today I started Plotnik's Spunk and Bite.

  11. Love the photo!

    I've just finished reading the book I won from your blog, and enjoyed it immensely (passing it on next to young readers to enjoy). Next on my list is a book on writing by James Scott Bell.
